People. This is it. Facebook has something to show us, on January 15th no less. “Come and see what we’re building” says the invite. What could it be? The fabled, practically-vapourware Facebook phone? Maybe a Facebook tablet? Or in fact, Facebook could have a new cyborg plug-in for your brain, so you can instantly over-share literally everything, including pure thought. Amazing!
God knows. Honestly, it could just be a new server architecture, or even something as lame as a new photo viewer. Anyway, the rumours point to a Facebook phone, even though MZuck himself said a phone would be “so clearly the wrong strategy for us”. Can’t get much more of a denial than that, but then maybe Zuckerberg doth protest too much? Pulling ‘a Jobs’ on us here Marky-Mark?
Either way, we’ll find out at Facebook’s mystery press conference on January 15th. I can hardly wait. [WSJ]
